The first time I heard JGB was in '89 - in person (Bob and Wasserman [?] opened). They impressed me enough that I got the CD simply titled "Jerry Garcia Band". It is a compilation of 1990 shows. I liked it so much that I searched out others (How Sweet It Is, Don't Let Go, Let It Rock and some unofficialls). All are disappointing compared to "Jerry Garcia Band", although Nicky Hopkins adds some cool stuff to "Let It Rock".

In my opinion "Jerry Garcia Band" is the one to get!

I haven't heard any offical Legion of Mary, but the unoffical I have is real good.
